Question about Creative Labs Zen MicroPhoto MP3 Player

2 Answers

Won't accept firm ware or go out of recovery mode.

3 different people including a best buy geek tried everything there is online to reboot the creative software. I can't imagine there is a trick I can do at home, so I want to mail it in to have the company (or whoever) fix it. I am fairly certain it is just a software issue. It is NOT in warranty so I will have to pay something, but I can't for the life of me find a way to contact anyone at the company to find out where/how to mail it in!!

    I'm having the same problem--I accidentally erased the firmware on my microphoto and when I went to reload the version I dowloaded from teh Creative site, my computer keeps telling me to plug my device in, which of course it already is. I've tried multiple USBs and ports. I tried to load the driver and I get this error: "A service installation section in this INF is invalid." I have combed the internet looking for help to no avail. Can anyone help?

Detach your player from the PC if it is connected, and turn off the player.
If the player stops responding, you can reset the player. To reset the player, gently
insert a thin object into the Reset hole located below the power switch.


Booting straight to the Recovery menu
I decided to open it up to check out the hard drive to see what kind I would need so I could try replacing it. The data plug that attaches to the hard drive itself was partially unplugged. So, I pushed it back in all the way, put it all back together again, and turned it on just to see if something different might happen. (I had it set in my mind that the hard drive failed and I would need a new one, so I didn't expect anything different to happen) And to my surprise, it worked just like new again.

Before you go off and invest in a new hard drive, I suggest opening it up and make sure that plug is in all the way. Since you'll be opening it up in any case, it wouldn't hurt

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6088. The last time I used it was last night and everything worked fine. It works with Windows 8.1, it has for a few months now, never had any problems until now. No...


Unplug the unit from ac power. Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (Yes, I know, nothing will happen visible). Replace battery. Plug unit back in. Now try the power button and see if the unit resets. Sometimes this helps when all else fails especially with a computer which has "hung up" like yours. Let me know if this worked!
